Key Sailors to be Invited to New Format ICRA Conference

4th October 2012
Key Sailors to be Invited to New Format ICRA Conference

#ICRA – Irish Cruiser Racing Associaton (ICRA) chief Barry Rose is to personally invite key individual sailors to participate in a new format for November's annual conference in Kilkenny.

The aim is to to encourage much greater participation by all present. Instead of a top table facing ranks of chairs/attendees ICRA are going for a 'round table' layout and are expecting to boost its regular 50 member turnout.

The line up for the event includes Olympic race officer Jack Roy and some other speakers yet to be announced.

'The people we want on this list come under a number of headings; regular competitors in the national championships, regular attendees at previous conferences, people who have set up new/interesting initiatives in cruiser sailing and perhaps most importantly, people who have something to say,' says the association's Denis Kiely.

Rose wants to get a spread of sailors from all parts of the country to participate. The conference is at the Newpark hotel in Kilkenny on November 17, 2012.
